Over the years, geotextile filters have established themselves as a standard revetment solution. Specification of a suitable geosynthetic system paves the way for the quick and efficient construction of longlasting revetments. Geosynthetic products also lend themselves to use in remedial protective measures, e.g. scour fill at the toe of slopes or the stabilization of eroding cliffs. Geosynthetic container units are filled with locally sourced materials. Mineral filters or stone revetments can be replaced by geosynthetic products. This reduces the logistical effort and boosts cost-effectiveness.
